Type of Fellowship: General
Year of Fellowship: 2010
Kate has been CEO of the Myton Hospice Group, providing palliative care across Coventry and Warwickshire, since December 2010. This role gives her a great insight into the NHS as well as strengthening her understanding of the power of 'locally' branded charities.
Previously she has been Director of Strategy for British Red Cross (3 years) following 13 years in various operational delivery roles in the same organisation. She was on the Board of Directors for 7 years, the previous 4 in the position of Director of UK Operations (Wales and Western England). This gives her practical leadership experience in both operational and strategic management at all levels, including working with volunteers in service delivery, governance and measuring impact.
She is well connected throughout the voluntary sector and enjoys acting as a switch, connecting people across the sector. She is married with two children and an allotment. She has an MBA and recently attended Harvard to learn how to measure things that don’t want to be measured – such as impact!
